ANNOUNCER: It's a Missouri story. Born in Houston under the shadow of the McCaskill family mill, there was a drought that year. Business slowed and the family moved around – Houston, Lebanon, Columbia. Claire worked her way through college and law school, waiting tables. For years, she drove her rusted-through Chevy Nova. For her first campaign, she knocked on 11,432 doors – and she won. It was a rough time to be the youngest woman in Jeff City, but they say she gave back as good as she got. Raising three kids as a single mom, she relied on family. As Jackson County prosecutor then state auditor, Claire was always independent and always working across the aisle to make a difference. Now a grandmother of 11, she's still the same as our senator. Claire McCaskill's never left Missouri. She takes this story to work with her every day because we all have a story and Claire's fighting to protect it.
MCCASKILL: I'm Claire McCaskill and I approve this message.
